. wolf blitzer's joining us live. wolf, this is not the kind of universal background check the obama administration had wanted or had been pushing. this is very limited. it is a watered down version. is this the best that the president thinks he's going to get? >> probably, if he can get it. it's by no means a done deal, it's a done deal, suzanne. it's got to get through the senate and then house of representatives. let's see what happens as far as amendments are concerned, what kind of nra-type amendments might be attached that would turn off the other side, the gun control advocates. but you're right, it doesn't include all of the universal background checks, the expansion that the president, so many democrats really wanted. but this is a compromise by two moderate members of the senate. both of whom have good records with the nra. pat toomey and joe. we'll see if the republican gets this. he's not going to get the other stuff he really wanted, the high capacity ammunition clips, he's not going to get anything on the military-type assault weapons, but this is a step as far as the w

in wolf blitzer. and wolf, good to see you as always. the president is talking about this compromise, of course, expanded background checks. it sounds rather limited, that this would not necessarily cover private sales but perhaps gun shows and internet sales. these exchanges wouldn't necessarial necessarially apply. >> it is not what they wanted. they wanted universal background checks. every gun sale in effect to make sure that whoever buys a gun has a background check, there are no criminals, felons, terrorists, mentally ill people. this is a step in the right direction from the president's perspective, certainly not what he really wanted and he wanted more than just universal background checks. he wanted a ban on those semi assault weapons, the assault-type weapons. he wanted a limit on how many bullets could be on thois magazi magazines. those issues are not on the table right now. they don't have much republican support and some democrats strongly oppose those kinds of expanded areas of gun control. this would be a step as far as the president is concerned in the right directio
.c. wolf blitzer was there. he was watching that live. he joins us live to continue coverage. wolf, i'll toss it over to you. >> ashleigh, thanks very much. thank kvevin for all of our viewers. president obama faces serious questions about the pressing issues in the was around the world from bombings in boston to the war in syria. the president a few moments ago, as you saw live on cnn, wrapped up a news conference with reporters in the white house briefing room. on the war in syria, evidence that chemical weapons were used. the president say his wants to make sure he has all of the facts before taking any direct, new action. >> if i can establish in a way that not only the united states but also the international community feel confident is the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime, then that is a game changer because what that portends is potentially even more devastating attacks on civilians and it raises the strong possibility that those chemical weapons can fall into the wrong hands. >> let's dig deeper now. gloria borger, she watched the news conference with all of us. the
you so much, wolf. this is a special edition of the "cnn newsroom" with wolf blitzer in boston. i'm here in atlanta. >>> so we have a lot more information about what's taken place over the course of the last week. more information about the jihadist video now that the older brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev had on his youtube aaccount. >>> but first, here are the latest details on the surviving suggest expect, the younger brother, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. he's still being hospitalized. he's listed in steer eerious bu stable condition. an official says he has injuries to his throat and is unable to talk. he could be charged by federal prosecutors today right at his hospital bedside. wolf? >> that would be a pretty dramatic moment if in fact a judge or magistrate shows up at the beth israel deaconess medical center, goes to the bedside of this 19-year-old suspect and formally noichz him of what's going on as far as federal charges are concerned. >> it would indeed. >>> let's take a look at what else we know about the process, the justice department coming up with some for
